Talks by Abdul Baha Given in Paris by 'Abdu’l-Bahá ‘Abbás (1844-1921) . [Translated by Lady Sara Louisa Blomfield (1859-1939)]

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: [http://librivox.org/talks-by-abdul-baha-given-in-paris-by-abdu%E2%80%99l-baha-%E2%80%98abbas/]

Quote:
“Much has already been written of the visit of Abdul Baha, Abbas Effendi, to Europe,” writes Lady Blomfield in her Preface to Paris Talks, “During his stay at Paris at 4, Avenue de Comoens, he gave short “Talks” each morning to those who crowded, eager to hear His Teaching. These listeners were of many Nationalities and types of thought, learned and unlearned, members of various religious sects, Theosophists and Agnostics, Materialists and Spiritualists, etc., etc. Abdul Baha spoke in Persian, which was translated into French. Of these “Talks” my two daughters, my friend and I took notes. Many friends asked us to publish these notes in English, but we hesitated. At length when Abdul Baha himself asked us to do so we, of course, consented—in spite of our feeling that our pen is “too weak for such high message.”” Paris Talks is a book transcribed from talks given by `Abdu'l-Bahá, the son and successor of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, while in Paris. It was originally published as “Talks by `Abdu'l-Bahá Given in Paris” in 1912. `Abdu'l-Bahá did not read and authenticate the transcripts of his talks in Paris, and thus the authenticity of the talks is not known. Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith, has said that while the texts are not authenticated, the compilations can still be used by Bahá’ís and in the future work will be done to find which parts are authentic. Lady Blomfield's copious notes are the basis of the volume. Lady Sara Louisa Blomfield [née Ryan] (1859-1939), who was given the title of Sitárih Khánum by `Abdu'l-Bahá, was the second wife to noted Victorian era architect Sir Arthur Blomfield, who died in 1899. She became a Bahá’í in 1907 and later served on the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the British Isles for eight of its first eleven years. (Introduction by Nicholas James Bridgewater)

@ 6:35 For Bahaism has no clergy, no religious
ceremonial, no public prayers ; its only dogma is belief
in God and in His Manifestations (Zoroaster, Moses,
Jesus, etc., Baha'u'llah).

Here we have a repeat


Flattery gets you everything! :lol: :lol:

Thanks so much Mim! :) I really appreciate it. I have now removed the repeat and re-uploaded.

It was getting a bit lonely here being MC and BC for this project. I've also added you to the Magic Window. ;)

RE: Sections 6 to 10 Proof listened and All okay except for

Section 8

@ 4:58 THE basis of the teaching of BahaVllah is the Unity A
of Mankind, and his greatest desire was that love
and goodwill should live in the heart of men.

Here there is a repeat

And @ 4:52 I notice a sound in the background, it is not bad, just could be looked at when you are there!


Mim :)

Section 8 re-uploaded! I'm guessing that sound must be some sort of vehicle outside. I've removed the sound. :)

@ 2: 44 Thank God with all your hearts that such a privilege
has been given unto you. For a life devoted to praise
is not too long in which to thank God for such a favour.
